About the property

6 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 12

Experience pure luxury in the Pocono Mountains at this beautiful and historic 104 year old home. The house was built as a vacation cottage in 1912 and has since been lovingly restored to its original condition of tongue and groove yellow pine. As you step inside, you are taken back to a time when clocks didn't matter and family traditions were the key to happy memories.

Each beautiful bedroom has a wrought iron bed and a comfortable place to sit quietly and soak in the natural surroundings. Leave your linens at home, Fresh Sheets and Towels are always provided at Ingleside. The updated kitchen and bathrooms confidently combine the home's old world charm with 21st century luxury.

In warmer weather, a big covered porch beckons all to sit and read, visit, and take meals outdoors. The bonus room above the garage offers 1000 square feet of hang out space with plenty of comfy seating, a huge TV, ping pong table, and bar.

Within 12 miles are 3 major ski mountains, outlet shopping, hiking, golfing, antiquing, and horse back riding. Less than 90 miles from both NYC and Philadelphia, this is a wonderful home for families to gather and enjoy their time together.

The house is also just 5 miles from the newly constructed Kalahari Resort. This incredible indoor water park and events center offers exceptional family fun, right down the road from Ingleside Cottage. The resort features restaurants, bars, games, shopping, a luxurious spa, and, of course, the amazing indoor water park!

**Please note, there is a minimum age of 30 for any groups of guests to rent this home. Families with children, of course, are more than welcome.

This incredible home on 3/4's of an acre is located on a beautiful and quiet residential street near Lake Naomi. There is a large, wide open bonus room above the 6 car garage that is heated in winter. In nicer weather, over a dozen windows open wide to let in the fresh, filtered air that the pine trees create. This large room serves as a second TV area/game room, making it a great place for the kids to have some fun without disturbing the peaceful atmosphere of the home! Or put the kids to bed, and let the parents have a blast!

Surprise 30th was a success!

  • 5 of 5

This house was MORE than I even expected. We were lucky enough to show up on a day where the snow had fallen just days before, which set us up for a beautiful scene. Thomas kept in touch up to the day we arrived. When I pulled up, he was waiting outside to greet me and to show me around his beautiful house. The pictures that are posted do not do this place any justice. When I first found this house, I knew this is where I wanted to throw the surprise 30th birthday party, but when I walked through the house, I was blown away. Throughout the house, there is a scent that lingers - Firewood? Frankincense? Comfort? The house stayed comfortably warm and the rooms were set up to make all feel welcome. We set up the surprise party in the Bonus Room, which was perfect. There was a ping pong table, a table to play cards, a cute bar where we set up champagne, and then seats around the rug, where we all sat and played games. The weekend was absolutely amazing and it was a shame when we woke up on Sunday and had to leave. Thomas made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. Thank you again Thomas - we will FOR SURE be back!

Perfect Famly weeekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

A group fo 13 of us traveled to Lake Naomi for the weekend of January 13-15. Age ranges 18 mo to 73 years. The house is stunning and the pictures do not do it justice. We never felt crowded and the bedrooms were perfect. It's like the dining room table was made for our family. We really enjoyed the game room over the garage and got great use out of the ping pong table!! It was so nice having all of the towels and sheets provided and it was one less thing to pack. We made all of our meals for the weekend in the house as the kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. We were worried the 2.5 bathrooms wouldn't be enough for all of us, but we just spaced out our showers throughout the day and it was perfect. We took a walk down to Lake Naomi and can't wait to come back in warmer weather to enjoy the beach/lake as well as the outdoot sitting areas of the cottage. We couldn't have asked for more out of this perfect Family weekend :)

Absolutly stunning property!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the house for the weekend with some friends and family members. Everyone absolutely loved the house. The house looks absolutely stunning inside, it is very cozy and romantic. All bedrooms were roomy and beds were very comfortable. This house has everything you need and more, including fantastic kitchen. The house and the game room are spotless, and attention to detail inside is phenomenal. The owners are fantastic, responded to all our questions in timely manner. Our whole family cannot wait to rent this house again.

Magical Framily Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year renting Ingleside and we couldn't have loved it more. Our "Framily" (friends that are really like family) consists of 6 adults, 7 kids from 10-4...and each of us loves calling this magical place our "Pocoloco home". Plenty of space, cozy beds, clean (everything) and the delicious scent of a recent burning fire from the beautiful fireplace welcomes us each year! On rainy days kids hang out in the awesome playroom over the garage watching movies or playing hide and seek in the many nooks and crannies of this neat home. Owners are always responsive and very helpful! Wish I could give it 10 stars. Until next year!

We had a wonderful family reunion. The pictures do not fully show this amazing home. We had 13 family members ranging in age from 1mo. to 66. We never felt too confined as there are plenty of places to hide for a little quiet time. The kids enjoyed the yard and ran off all that energy and the play room gave us space to hang on the one day it rained. Thoroughly recommend this home. Thank you Thomas..
